video i've looked at it closely it does indeed tally what one might say. the hallmarks of white phosphorous use for example a very bright light burned in and multiple burns coming down from the sky it's an air weapon that's been used such as a mortar or perhaps from an aircraft and then of course again to tell still. in the day time sharing actually this very. white a gray smoke so white phosphorus being used it's an alarming development of course it needn't necessarily be legal but it depends on the you situate consent and that's exactly why of course and indeed other people even from the west should be even if they haven't so far should be calling for a pop up in full investigation of this incident to prevent a escalating. well white phosphorus is extremely dangerous and when used as a weapon it can cause painful chemical burns often with lethal consequences and

4:08 am
capital baghdad the fight against assad in syria has bolstered these islamist militants and gave them new resources and the sectarian food in iraq has allowed the group to gain momentum and recruits the sectarian war in iraq broke out after the u.s. invasion in two thousand and three and has been a source of constant violence ever since now the u.s. may invade again to stop the onslaught of the islamist militants my team is working around the clock to identify how we can provide the most effective assistance to them i don't rule out everything because we do have a stake in making sure that. these jihadists are not getting a permanent foothold in either iraq or syria for that matter the u.s. says all options are on the table except it's on the ground u.s. officials don't specify what options they're looking at this could include airstrikes the goal of this militant group is to create
4:09 am
a caliphate the islamic state to cross a vast area that includes syria and iraq but for many iraqis the prospect of being bombed by the u.s. again is no less daunting they're already being shelled by the iraqi government which is striving to drive the militants. out when taking over a mall so heavily armed radicals overran police stations three more than a thousand prisoners in the city jail and took over the international airport iraqi forces apparently ran in the face of the onslaught leaving behind weapons through the forms and armored vehicles more than half a million people have fled seeking refuge the situation for most the wrong things is dire and it has been sophie's years they were promised democracy but all they've seen is violence with no end in sight. while the jadis have also managed to seize some american army hardware that was supplied earlier to iraq to help it fight the insurgency michael o'brien who was a u.s. defense department contract to iraq discussed iraq's disintegrating security with

a need to now eat in ati's in that. you now have instead of suicide bombers and all that and people getting killed you know it's going to the next step. instead of people just being people getting murdered now you're taking actually land there they're actually they vote for all practical purposes running ambar province they're taking over the country now how much responsibility should put on the iraqi government here well the rocky governments incompetent it's inept but you know that the job is impossible you know saddam was it was a bad actor he was a bad guy but he kept a lid on everything through force the maliki you know is a shiite and the sunni's are upset because they were in charge and they want to take over again and saddam kept a lid on all of this maliki doesn't have a prayer of the iraqis the iraqi government can't and i don't know if any iraqi government could do this unless it was
4:11 am
a dictatorship like it was under saddam. struggles to defeat jihadists in the country the u.s. is fabricating terrorists at home which we'll tell you shortly. what they're trying to do was to convince the american public that there is this large army of potential terrorists that they should all be very very scared about a muslim advocacy group report says that since two thousand and one u.s. security services have been entrapping and. washington perceives to be dangerous in the future also ahead. taking a step forward in his controversial plan to force a palestinian prisoners ignoring his place.

with science punishment for an uncommitted crying i was done for in eighty feebleminded still today for the few i don't know why. but i still don't know why genetic improvements through forced sterilization the basis for nazi ideology don't stop at just a. and how go to the point of death as it is for years rarely discussed. till now. really rather than dark about that way. russia has given ukraine its final deadline to sort out its gas agreement with
4:14 am
europe nervously watching from the sidelines a third of the continent's gas comes from russia through ukraine and if it gets cut off that is likely to cause headaches for european homes and businesses so let's break down these prices are in fact worked and right now it stands at three hundred eighty five dollars per cubic meter which is one hundred dollars less than what western europe generally pays and it's roughly the same price that was agreed on by former prime minister yulia timoshenko back in two thousand and nine since then though moscow has applied a few discounts in two thousand and ten the price dropped to three hundred fifteen dollars because of the agreement to station russia's black sea fleet base in crimea three years later then president any code which agreed to enter a customs union with russia and the us or the gas price go down to two hundred and sixty eight dollars these agreements though no longer exist but ukraine insists it should get gas at a bargain price which no one else gets artie's lynagh lucia explains.
4:15 am
somewhat surprising given that ukraine is now looking west and plans to sign an association agreement with the e.u. so the price of three hundred eighty five dollars is at a market level reasonable moscow is offering to fix that price for at least a year prime minister gets nukes been there before back in two thousand and nine. president put an agreed on roughly the same price that russia is offering today yet now he's accusing moscow of using gas as a political tool if gas is a political weapon then this political weapon is in the hands of the russian government and if gas is a good as it typically is all across the world then that trade is based on a contract and not based on whether russia likes the ukrainian government or not so ukraine wants to squeeze the price to the lowest rate despite the fact that it still owes a whopping four billion dollars gazprom chairman is far from impressed by his bargaining tactics but use of the strategy of the ukrainian side is outright
4:16 am
blackmail from the start they took new constructive steps made no compromises and apparently want to be maximally aggravate our gas relationship and of course that leaves europe in limbo too in two thousand and six gas supplies were cut off after ukraine siphoned fuel intended for europe from the transit pipes in two thousand and nine did it again russia has already given ukraine the benefit of the doubt and shifted deadlines to help negotiations so now the balls in kiev scored. real dollars from international action center thinks kiev is treading on dangerous ground in these gas negotiations. the ukrainian government is being intransigent putting its own population at risk and also putting the people of europe at risk i think in this particular case the russian government is not acting politically without being on a strictly economics market basis they are offering gas to ukraine at a lower price than europe is you could say that russia was acting politically
4:17 am
earlier when it gave large discounts to ukraine in a desire for stability but if the ukrainian government is behaving in a hostile way. there is no reason for russia to give ukraine special political consideration. on the ukrainian crisis is also the focus of today's cross talk with pay to live. divisions within ukraine are becoming greater with each passing day the western backed regime in cave shows no interest in compromise or negotiations at the same time civilians in the east continue to die is going for broke. let's cross talk a bit later on now israeli lawmakers have given their initial approval to force feed hundreds of palestinian prisoners who've been on hunger strike for over fifty days the government is trying to fast track beenish to parliament but the country's medical community says it's inhumane and is refusing to comply the head of

physicians for human rights hopes israeli doctors will stand for. post feeding he's not considered as a measurable is the correct use of told he's really government is interested in passing the law as soon as possible even if the us we believe that physicians really need to use and obey to the medical ethics and not to these really low in these cases and physicians we do not take part in co-chair post feeding it we didn't really save anyone's life and it could lead to in ten no damages. and other different health complications that of approximately three hundred. palestinian prisoners and detainees on hunger strike and about seventy hospitalized today is the fifty day of the of the hunger strike and the three starting to be

tactics used during the riots. plans government is under fire from the united states for mounting attacks against civilians in the south of the country the u.s. ambassador to the united nations said that in recent months government troops have repeatedly bombed villages as the army battles rebels in the region in this instance than have been fighting the arab dominated government for three years accusing it of discriminating against non arab minority. getting evicted if your suspected you might cause trouble in the future it is a practice security services in the united states have been using according to muslim advocacy groups there it's known as preventive prosecution but critics say it's nothing more than entrapment marina portnoy explains how almost ninety five percent of those found guilty were provoked by the f.b.i. . in a post nine eleven america hundreds of muslims have been arrested prosecuted and
4:24 am
imprisoned for attempting to carry out terrorist attacks however this study just released finds that the u.s. government has played a major role in orchestrating most of those so-called terror plots in order to exaggerate the domestic threat of muslim extremism when examining the department of justice is a list of three hundred ninety nine terrorism cases the study found that ninety four percent of those cases involved preemptive prosecution that's a prop this up targeting those who officials deem predisposed to committing crimes before an actual crime is committed in some insight be illogical beliefs in other instances the f.b.i. used an agent provocateur work to recruit vulnerable individuals moring them with cash and call worsening them into carrying out a terrorist attack that was set up by the f.b.i. now federal informant would provide the fake explosives and instruct the defendant
4:25 am
on what to do this is otherwise known as entrapment now the one hundred seventy five page report was released by project salaam a group providing support and legal advocacy for muslims one of the co-authors told me his findings make it difficult to believe in the integrity of the u.s. justice system and federal agencies what they're trying to do was to convince the american public that there is this large army of potential terrorists that they should all be very very scared about they are very much engaged in worldwide surveillance and this surveillance is very valuable to them they can learn an awful lot about all sorts of things and in the sense control it's control issues and to their advantage and the entire legal justification for the depends on there being a war on terror without a war on terror they have no right to do this. so they keep this war on terror
4:26 am
going they have to keep finding people and arresting them and locking them up and scaring everybody because without that the they cannot justify the kind of surveillance they're doing us surveillance as the public has learned is not just limited to muslim citizens critics say unless there is a public outcry over a government manufactured crime that soon may eventually become common practice and target anyone very important i am artsy new york. you're with the international button but it's coming your way. in london in one of the caring hearts of one of the capitals of loving liberal e.u. they've implemented a plan to finally get homeless people off the streets at night so that they provide these desperate people to jobs they could at least earn a few pounds and have some human dignity of course not they put down spikes
4:27 am
everywhere on the ground so that the hobos have nowhere to sleep yes that is right they're laying down spikes to keep up the homeless just like dragon's teeth keep out tanks now if this happened somewhere in say bangladesh on a bad day i might say well that is their business but all the liberals in the e.u. just constantly cry from their ivory tower to the whole world about how we all need to be tolerant and be taxed to death to help people but as a guy who grew up in a bad neighborhood i can tell you that liberals never want to live near the people they claim to want to help you know henry ford was one of those guys who said that you should never give anybody any handouts so what he did was give the disabled and the poor a decent paying jobs at his factory so listen up you liberal loony bin if you want to get those evil yucky print for people off the streets just put them to work it will read your city of its homeless problem a lot faster than spikes will but that's just my.
4:28 am
they all told me my language as well but i will only react to situations i have read the reports like the police and the no i will leave them to the state department to comment on your minor point the muslims say exists or k.l.a. cars are you talking no god. no job no more weasel words when you made a direct question and be prepared for a change when you run should be ready for a. printout of speech and a little down to freedom to cost. dramas the truth be ignored. stories others refused to notice. faces change the world rights never.
